Student Profile(s)

Leonie Lawrence

After finishing my MSc, I joined Global Canopy Programme, initially working on international climate and forest policy before moving on to researching the supply chains driving tropical deforestation. Since then, I have expanded my work in this area, focusing on palm oil and sustainable investment in my previous role at ZSL, and recently joining WCS as Regional Technical Adviser on forest rich commodities. I am currently based in Indonesia working to reduce the impacts of agriculture and its related supply chains, including those of coffee and copra, on protected areas. DICE was invaluable in teaching me about the complexities of conservation, the challenges we face and the range of skills needed for effective interdisciplinary conservation. I loved my time at DICE and now being part of the wide-reaching network of DICE alumni.
